Kids Art Fair had an Awesome turnout.

On Monday and Tuesday evening we hosted our Kids Art Fairs so our parents could come purchase their child's artwork matted and framed. It was beautiful!!!!! I almost wish we could keep the work up all year long, right there in the lobby, because it makes such an incredible impact when you walk in the school. We had a wonderful turn out on Monday and Tuesday nights, with all attending amazed at the talent our children possess.

We are still selling the artwork through Friday Night at our big Arts Extravaganza. If you have not purchased your child's work, it is not too late.

Thanks to all who helped volunteer during the event!
